dnsmasq question

I ran

dnsmasq --log-queries
so that I can see the activity coming through when I tail syslog.

Any requests made to a public web site (eg. show up in the log as being forwarded to the correct IP. And the correct page is displayed in the browser.

Any requests that match the contents of /etc/hostname, in this case, show up as multiple entries of:

Feb 25 14:35:35 dev1 dnsmasq[2359]: query[A] from

Feb 25 14:35:35 dev1 dnsmasq[2359]: /etc/hosts is
and the correct page displays in the browser.

But if I request another host added into my /etc/hosts file, like, the log shows:

Feb 25 14:54:20 dev1 dnsmasq[2359]: query[A] from

Feb 25 14:54:20 dev1 dnsmasq[2359]: forwarded to

Feb 25 14:54:20 dev1 dnsmasq[2359]: reply is <NXDOMAIN>-IPv4

and a cannot find server or dns error is displayed.

Here is my /etc/hosts file:
Code:       localhost.localdomain   localhost       dev1    dev1       test

I don't understand why is not being redirected to the appropriate place. Is there anything else I have to configure for this tto work?
